The objectives of TRANZFOR www.tranzfor.eu are to promote knowledge exchange in the general domain of Forests and Climate Change between Australia and New Zealand and the European Union through short to medium term (2– 12 months) staff exchanges. Work programmes have been developed around the following areas: Genomics and tree breeding, Forest Models, Environmental Services, Risk Assessment, Bioenergy. The purpose of the mid-term workshop was to:
share experience and knowledge gained through TRANZFOR exchanges to date among participants and projects
document and discuss emerging issues and forest adaptation priorities in each of the thematic areas to target future exchanges and explore more broadly common science agendas.
